Start modeling right away
Don't waste time learning complicated software. SketchUp is the fun, easy way to learn 3D modeling. Once you've got the basics down, draw whatever you imagine—one element at a time.
Create any shape imaginable
Transform simple shapes into imaginative structures using SketchUp's Move and Scale tools. And, with Solid tools, you can manipulate geometry easily. Combining a wing onto a model plane or interlocking parts together? No problem.
Take risks. We've got your back
SketchUp’s speed and simplicity support exploration, experimentation, and the occasional misfire by letting you make and fix mistakes before you ever get to g-code. And, in the case of true catastrophes, there’s always Autosave.
Your 3D toolkit
STL import and export
SketchUp speaks STL—and a whole bunch of other 3D file formats—so your models are always one click away from the standard 3D printing file format.
